Assuming it's something to do with plastic parts. I've seen a almost fully disassembled Sette and I can't imagine there will be any long term problems with the grinding mechanism. it's also hard to imagine that "Stopped grinding" without the comment, "the motor still runs but the burrs on't turn," is a problem with the grinding mechanism. Seems more likely to be electronics or the motor which metal parts would likely not fix. I would own a Sette except for the noise which I decided I was not willing to put up with. I'm ever so much happier with the near silence of my Monolith, but if not for the noise, I probably would have a Sette and $1800 or so. The number of issues has been small and Baratza has always stepped up and done the right thing. And like in all things internet, you almost never hear from the folks with ones that just work.
If I ship something that doesn't work, I hear from about 100% of the customers, if I ship something that does work, I hear from about .01% of the customers and that might be a really high estimate.
